Ever wanted to start your own business?

The first step for turning your idea into reality is writing a viable plan of action.

That’s why the Small Business Center of Southwestern Community College will offer a free seminar entitled, “How to Write a Business Plan” from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, August 22, at the college’s Macon Campus.

Your business plan must first convince you that your business will work “on paper.” It can then be used to convince others that it will succeed. With your business plan, you can apply for a loan and the plan can subsequently serve as a road map for your business success.
